Jill J (nl) wrote: A film lives up to it's title by being sweet and warm but not sickeningly so. It has been compared to 'Steel Magnolias' and I feared it would have that film's cloying sentimentality but thankfully it doesn't.On paper, the female protagonists could easily be seen as chick flick stereotypes but the acting and well drawn character observations prevent that. The different cultural background and how it impacts the women is fascinating, and quite enlightening, too but there's still plenty of common ground to relate to. The ending they've opted for is the most obvious one for a film like this. It does feel predictable and a little cheesy; almost like watching a commercial. The tone isn't so far off the rest of the movie that it ruins it though. It might be an on-the-nose and slightly fluffy ending but it's still an enjoyable, satisfying and in-keeping conclusion to the film.It is also beautifully shot and the cinematography and direction do elevate it above what it actually is but what it is is still a well observed, well acted female character study...and there's nothing wrong with that.

Clintus M (gb) wrote: How would you respond to ever-present crime, especially when it becomes personal? That's the central question in this film, a controversial crime film centered on vigilantism in the early 1970s. This is a stylish 1970s message picture, not unlike Dirty Harry just a few years prior. Charles Bronson's middle-aged businessman, liberal, and prior conscientious objector character must answer that question. Do you remain "civilized" (a term used throughout) or do you stand and fight? Bronson's Paul Kersey takes a cue from a business acquaintance in Tucson, and starts looking for justice. Not content to look for the criminals who destroyed his family, he actively seeks out muggers and kills them. This film was controversial; is it really propaganda for vigilantism? I really don't see Bronson in that vein. He does seem satisfied although conflicted at first. Also, the home invasion/rape scene is not for the timid; it must have been shocking in 1974. I recommend this, although it is dated and I like Dirty Harry more. In the same vein, Tom Clancy's Without Remorse would make a great movie; I wonder why that hasn't been made? Look for Christopher Guest, Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs, and Jeff Goldblum. Also, Vincent Gardenia shines as Det. Frank Ochoa, probably the most believable character in the film.

Mikey M (ru) wrote: Lang and Edward G. Robinson form a formidable team, but this isn't quite up there with Scarlet Street, most notably because of the hugely disappointing ending.
Film C (de) wrote: Finally got round to watching this movie from begining to end and i thoroughly enjoyed it! I love seeing Jim Carrey in more serious roles rather than his usual annoying goofey self and even when his goofeyness was required in this movie it was toned down quite dramatically! Its a great cast, i love the concept and is just an entertaining and slightly confusing at the start which keeps you thinking!Everything about this movie is beautiful, its beautifully written, beautifully acted and a lovely and beautiful concept with a strong meaning as well! Well worth the watch!
